    How big? You should have put a finger down next to it in the picture so we could judge. :)

    This widow had her babies crawling all over the beers in the storage compartment by our beer stand (volunteered for a pixies/Weezer concert). Felt like playing Russian roulette every time we had to get another case. Hell I didn't even know that got that big.

    Just for reference... Those are 40oz cans. o_O

    Black Widows get pretty damn big and FAT!!! Plus, you can typically tell when it is a Black Widow web when the web, literally, has a "tearing sound"!!! Almost a dead giveaway (no pun intended) that it's a widow web!!! :thumbsup:

    Btw, were you just dying to give people their beers??? :laughing::laugh::rofl::rofl::rofl::D:p

    Just kidd'n brotha!!! I F'N HATE spiders!!! :goingcrazy:

    HAHAHAHA, this is a really cool read. I like the part about "training it". But honestly, when I was a kid (around 9-10yrs old) there used to be a jumping spider that I would feed flies to that just hung around the big window that was in our house. It almost seemed as if it knew that I was getting ready to feed it as well? :notsure: Something I always remembered and if that is true, then the article is believable, in my humble opinion. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, when I was a kid, my brother caught a lizard, I know them as "California Alligator Lizards". :notsure: Anyways, we lived by the railroad tracks in Oceanside, near Camp Pendleton, and we would catch crickets (NOTE: these MrFr's were, more or less, black in color and F'N BIG) by/on/near the railroad tracks, spiders (around the house), flies, etc so that we had food for the lizard because our family was basically poor, if you will. Anyways, catching spiders was almost a nightly activity for us as well as the crickets. Let me tell you, those F'N crickets BIT!!! :goingcrazy::bananadead::laughing::laugh::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Finally, back around 2006, I just came into work and noticed a web near the floor area where we clocked in up front in the office. I told the bosses wife that it looked like a Black Widow web. She was skeptical about it and I told her, "look and listen to the sound it makes..." (i.e. I explained to her what she would hear and what would come out if it was occupied). I took a pencil or something and "tore" at the webbing and a Black Widow popped out. She was surprised by all of that. HAHAHAHAHA :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    But yeah, we would feed the lizard Black Widows as well... on occasion, but we typically didn't like doing that.

    Would I go "spider hunting" again? "F"oxtrot "U"niform, copy!!! :laughing::laugh::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Btw, these were the most common, by far, type of spiders we would catch. "Common House Spider" is what I know them as? :notsure:
    CommonHouseSpider_California.jpg

    This is a picture of a cricket that looks very similar to what we used to catch on near the railroad tracks? HAHAHAHAHA, we would just follow the sound and hunt them down. :thumbsup:
    BlackCricket_California.jpg

    Anyways, I, most definitely, would NOT do that again!!! Surprised my brother and I lived during our childhood years because of the stupid shi* we did???!!! :laughing::laugh::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Haha I also wonder how I made it to adulthood with some of the dumb stuff I did growing up. Another spider story for ya. I used to be stationed in Hawaii. The last 6 months of my tour I ran the PT (physical training) office. The office and the gym were in a big tent outside. Needless to say we got some kreepy krawlies that would sneak in from time to time. We had a resident cane spider that one day decided to hang out INSIDE the tray of my metal file organizer. I reach in and he scurried up my arm. I've never had a grand maul seizure...but I imagine it must be something like how I reacted. I flung the whole organizer like 10ft as I flipped the f out and was flailing arms and legs all over the place like a fish out of water yelling Fuckfuckshitfuckingshitfuck! I supervised PT outside for the rest of that day... In case you've never seen a cane spider, this is what they look like. Still more scared of centipedes though. Those guys REALLY give me the heebee geebees...

    Edit: oh and we didn't see him for 3 days. Next tome we saw him he was getting swole on one of the arm machines lol.

    @Ensemble88 btw, these are stock photos, but the type/category lizard that we had as "pets". I can tell you that these guys make AWESOME pets to have and can get pretty big as you can see relative to the hand in the one picture. How they eat is pretty interesting when they're "hunting" their pray and getting ready to pounce. They move their head from side-to-side in a fairly rapid motion, assuming they're "zeroing in" and/or "centering" their target just before they pounce on it... and STRIKE!!! :eek::thumbsup: Totally miss that lizard and this was back in the 80's.

    I can assure you that they're pretty intelligent and can be domesticated. Ours used to coil up and sleep next to my brother's pillow!!! :thumbsup:

    EDIT:
    we named him "Charlie"

    That's awesome. Wish I had one of those guys to attack the big flying roaches in Hawaii...called em B52's because they'd dive bomb your head. Nothing like feeling one of them on you and waking you up when you're sleeping and then NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND IT THE REST OF THE NIGHT. Gahh...
